Join Shared Future to learn all about citizens assemblies

Are citizens’ assemblies a way to refresh our democracy? Citizens’ assemblies are being used throughout the world to push for action on some of our biggest challenges from climate change to policing. This practical session from Shared Future looks at what, why and how they work.

The Fête of Britain is a four-day celebration of collaboration and imagination in the face of the great challenges of our time. From the climate crisis to the cost of living, nothing is off the table. The Fête of Britain takes over Aviva Studios from 22 to 25 February. Find out more: The Fête of Britain
